A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer.
This website has been created in response to ESSO & UGL's tactics used to undermine the working wages & conditions of the their loyal contractual maintenance workers.
Upon completion of a successful 7 year contract and the winning of a further 7 year contract, UGL set up a subsidiary company MTCT Services Pty Ltd (An on paper company only).
Instead of continuing business as usual for a further 7 years, UGL saw fit to sack the entire workforce and then offer them their jobs back (the very next day) under the title of MTCT Services Pty Ltd.
There was only one catch, It would be at the cost of eroding conditions that had been built up by the employees over a number of years previously.
Signing up to MTCT Services Pty Ltd would see the workers face
Once again we see a company decline to negotiate a good & fair EBA with their workers, but have an EA signed in WA by three individuals only that will never be employed under these conditions.
These conditions are then presented to the workforce in a "Take It or Leave It" approach.
UGL along with ESSO, are exploiting a legal loop hole in the system which is being used to undermine wages & conditions. This tactic is rife across Australia and was recently highlighted in the CUB dispute.... Battle Of The Brewery.
This is not only an attack on the work force, but an attack on the surrounding communities that rely on money being spent in their shops, their business, theirs schools etc.
It is a direct attack on our Families, our Mothers, Fathers, Sons & Daughters.
As mentioned previously, this tactic is now being used all across Australia. When and Where will it Stop???
We believe that time is NOW!!!
It's time for Australian Workers to say NO!!!
It's time for the community to say enough is enough!!!
We the workers of the ESSOUGLy Dispute are not going to stand for this!!!
We are committed to Stand Up for What we value
& Who we value.
IT'S TIME TO STAND UP AUSTRALIA, FIGHT BACK!!!
201 days fighting Exxon Mobil & UGL.
Please share our story and follow the ESSO/Longford UGLy Dispute on Facebook here.
Think of how many Schools, Hospitals, Teachers, Nurses, Roads and Bridges we could build/employ, if greedy multinationals like Exxon Mobil stopped taking advantage of us and were made to pay their fair share!
What kind of country lets a foreign multinational bleed $25 billion in resources, export most of it, and pay not a cent in tax?
We do. And it's time we changed. Share this so everyone knows EXXON Mobil is Australia's worst tax dodger.
Are shutdowns being extended due to under skilled & under qualified personnel? Is the back log of repairs continuing to grow rapidly, increasing the likelihood of a major catastrophe?
"Not only has Exxon completely sidestepped tax for three years while it made $25 billion in revenue from selling Australia’s natural resources, a large chunk of that revenue came from its oil and gas venture with BHP in the Bass Strait and the price of gas for domestic consumers has tripled."

Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and a big thank you from our families to yours. We appreciate your support throughout our struggle. Together we will overcome Exxon Mobil's corporate greed and UGL Limited' blatant abuse of Australia's broken workplace laws.
Australia’s political leaders ought to charge US oil giant ExxonMobil and its directors with contempt of parliament. Exxon has deceived the Senate.
